Sharing skills, knowledge, practical support, ideas, stuff and time
WeShare is a Gift Economy Community that shares skills, knowledge, practical support, ideas, stuff and time, and all for free. It was founded by volunteers, for volunteers and is run by volunteers. All WeShare activities are conceived, designed, implemented, and administered by people who give their time so that we can all benefit from a more caring society and live a more sustainable life.
We give, swap, lend, teach and learn from and with each other – for free. Our website provides the platform for sharing for all groups within the WeShare collective. We are a community of people aiming to reduce the environmental impact of consumption by sharing the things we only use occasionally.
WeShare also inspired Falling Fruit, a project to harvest the seasonal glut of local fruit (apples, pears, plums, nuts, etc.) from throughout the Dublin area. Fruit is given to charities that cater for those in need.
CRNI is leading an EPA Green Enterprise project Circular Textiles, which will test the impact of three different separate collection systems for textiles and explore how we could manage the additional quantity of textiles that are collected. This project will be concluded in 2022.
